The El Monte Valley WIC office is located on Santa Anita Ave between Main St and Ramona Blvd. WIC services are available in English, Spanish, Cantonese, Mandarin, and Vietnamese at this office. Services are available in other languages by phone and video.
WIC provides free food, tips for healthy eating, family resources, and breastfeeding support at no cost. Food benefits are loaded each month on an electronic debit card that you can use to shop at grocery stores that accept WIC.
If you are pregnant or have been pregnant in the last 6 months, or care for a child under 5 years old you may qualify for WIC benefits. Foster parents, dads, and caretakers are encouraged to apply for their children. WIC is for low to medium income families. If you receive Medi-Cal, CalFresh, or food stamps, you meet the WIC income guidelines.
